how big

here is a pic of the boar that is visiting the site withe the sow and cubs from my other post just wondering how big you guys think he is. I know hes not a monster, but these inbetweeen bears are the hardest to judge. This bait has only been going for 3 days now.

If you double click on the pic it will blow it up to full screen if that helps. Im not looking for an exact weight but a ballpark. Hope to get more pics soon. Thanks Brandon

Maybe you could cut some sticks at 6 feet long. When you see the pics with your "measuring" sticks you can get a good idea of how big it is.

Hard to tell, but it looks like a shooter. Probably over 200 lbs but probably under 300 lbs. Good luck.

Not sure I would put him at or over 200? Got a good coat on him but look at the space between his belly and the ground. This is not a big ol fat bear. He does look to be tall just hasent put the weight on?

Im going to agree with billythekidrock... By that pic his ears dont look real big which is usually a good indicator of bear size. I would say atleast 200lbs...

I need a better pic to get a better estimate... Hes a shooter though...IMO

I also noticed the almost straight line belly on him. I guessed him right around 200 also, just was wondering what others thought. Hopefully he spreads some scent and lures in his grandpa. If not I'll definately take him. I was also glad to see him coming in when it was still very light out. For some reason the camera didnt print the time. 1 month to go.

redrider, havent had the camera out because i am 4 hours from the bait. I only had it out one night before I had to leave. I will be going back up in 3 days and staying for 5 so hopefully will have some more pics. Family is baiting for me while im gone and has said that the bait has been cleaned out every day, I just hope the sow and 4 cubs are leaving enough to keep this guy or a bigger one interested.
